When are you going to fix this cycle route? https://t.co/mJcvjHzCdc pic.twitter.com/EXY8pTXjwZ
This path has been closed since December 2015
This morning was the first time in 14 months I have seen work being carried out on the path.
Rubble was being lifted into the area of the collapsed path and raked into position.
On returning this evening it was clear that this was not a long term repair of the towpath but a short term cludge.
Bags of rocks have been placed in the river to provide an outer edge and rubble has been put in between the bags and the remaining path to build the area up towards path level.
The fact that this is a short term measure begs the question as to why it has take over 14 months to get this far?
